    3 commas. I changed the form of sentence please look.

    I was confused, for there was three commas(,) in the original sentence.
    So I changed the form of original sentence. Please look at the below.
    Did I changed the sentence grammatically?


    Original sentence: "In atherosclerosis, small patches of fatty material, composed mostly of cholesterol, form on the inside lining of the arteries."


    Transformed sentence:"Small patches of fatty material, composed mostly of cholesterol, form on the the inside lining of the arteries in atherosclerosis."

    Do you have some concern about three commas? There is no limit on the number of commas in a sentence, although, if they get out of hand, as this sentence appears to be, we tend to start a new sentence, unless we decide not to.

    I get confused if there are more than three commas in the sentence. Because I'm not used to those kinds of sentences.
    And sometimes it's hard to find which thing modifies.
